Just spun Satyricon's Nemesis Divina. Its sinking in more and more, though I still prefer the post Rebel albums.

Demolition Hammer - Time Bomb

I fuckin love this album! The opening trio of songs absolutely crush, other highlights include Blowtorch, the title track and a rather bizarre choice of a cover of Devo's Mongoloid. The Steve Evetts production is killer too.
The pits would've been total fuckin chaos!


They played a fest I was at a few years ago and despite them being one of the bands I was totally primed to enjoy...by the time they took the stage I was blackout drunk. :( I've seen them and was told they were great.

Hahaha so you got demolition hammered before seeing Demolition Hammer nice.
I was just checking setlist fm and it looks like they haven't played anything off Time Bomb since 1994. That's a goddamned tragedy, those songs are too bloody good to not be played and they'd fit in nicely with the songs from the first 2 albums. I mean it's not like with Time Bomb they donned spandex, applied hairspray and makeup and wrote songs about Cherry Orchards and whatnot, Time Bomb is a fuckin brutal album in it's own right.

Autopsy - The Voracious One

"Morbidity Triumphant" really is their best one since "Mental Funeral", isn't it? What a fucking ripper of an album!

Skullview - Consequences of Failure

Never heard their third or fourth albums. This is killer. Just great raw old metal. Hammering riffs and choruses.

edit - God this is great. Some of this may be their best material. Just excellent trad metal.

today:

Paradise Lost - "Shades of God"
This was my first PL album, purchased back in '95.

Solitude Aeturnus - "Through the Darkest Hour"
Absolutely stellar album. Saw them open for Mercyful Fate in early 1995....they may have been the better band that night.

Both of those albums were my introductions to those bands. I had read so much good stuff about Paradise Lost and Gothic that I snapped up Shades Of God when it came out in 92, still my favorite. I'm a huge fan of Solitude Aeturnus and Robert Lowes vocals and coincidentally I'm listening right now to the Merycful Fate S/T EP which freaking rules, so I'm very jealous you got to see 2 of my favorite bands together back in the day!

Deceased - The Kept

Love this, ''As the Weird Travel On'' might be my favorite from the band!
Thrashy, riffy, melodic, just awesome!

Halloween - Welcome

This band is so basic but they do sort of fit a mood for the season. They seem to capture something in just the right amount. Just something kinda fun about back to basics old 80s metal.

Medieval Steel - Gods Of Steel

On my 2nd listen and I'm loving this album. The songs go down smooth and easy like a nice aged whiskey. Between this and the new albums from Cauldron Born and surprisingly Wolf, this is turning into a pretty good year for classic trad metal. If only I could say the same thing about trad doom.

Medieval Steel is awesome!



Pallbearer - Forgotten Days

Really good doom, been into the band since the first album.
Might see these guys live in 3 weeks... I should right?

Yeah I went back to it recently - very good stuff for a band that maybe we couldn't have even expected to come back.

Deceased - Mrs Allardyce

Kicking off the spooky season in earnest. Their best work.

Helstar - Clad In Black EP

The 3 new songs are great. There's also 3 covers to pad it out which are pretty good I suppose but I would've preferred more new songs. It's been a while since Vampiro so it's a bit of a shame they didn't have enough original material to make a full album.

NP: AFI - All Hallows EP

Getting into the Halloween spirit is not really a natural thing down this part of the world, it's springtime for us and creeping towards summer, which will be nice after one of the wettest but relatively warm winters on record.
I've very recently repurchased and been getting back into AFI's classic albums Black Sails In The Sunset, The Art of Drowning and All Hallows EP along with Son Of Sam "Songs From The Earth". That period from '99 to '01 was spectacular for AFI and Davey, just awesome catchy as fuck horror, gothic infused punk rock with real depth to it.

Smith / Kotzen - Better Days ...And Nights

Just picked this up at the local store, some sweet bluesy rock is now pumping from my shitty car speakers. Great stuff.
They didn't have the latest Autopsy fuck it all...there's gonna be a bloody riot if it ain't there next week!

Moonlight Sorcery - For Thy Light is Ice

A brilliant melodic black metal song that feels perfect for the upcoming winter season!

The Future Sound of London - Lifeforms

Just another lame weekend day chilling with this masterpiece of… uh… Acid House I think it’s called or whatever.

Cradle of Filth - Amor e Morte

Few metal bands are as appropriate for Halloween as this, honestly.

You know you're listening to AFI's best stuff when you can barely understand a fucking word Davey's saying.
Really though, I love that period of the band - they had a very distinct take on punk at the time.

Robert Plant - Bluebirds over the Mountain.

Man, we need a new Robert Plant album REALLY badly. The last two studio records were phenomenal.

200 Stab Wounds - Itty Bitty Pieces

These guys seem to have a little more hype than the other... uh, hardcore-kids-playing-death-metal bands that are popular right now (Frozen Soul/Undeath/Gatecreeper/etc.) and I guess it's not hard to see why. They're bizarrely catchy. Considering going to that coheadliner they're doing with Undeath in a couple months.

Just spun the whole Samael - Blood Ritual album.

First time I ever hear this record. Crushing riffage. Sound is more death metal than black I think. Great record.

Last night:

Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

Yes, an old favourite. Works in the night-time. Would never listen to this during the daylight, not anymore. But maybe I'll spin it on the coming Christmas, it works well also for that occasion.

Now:

Iron Maiden - The Red and the Black

A very long song, but doesn't feel like an epic in the vein of Rime, Alexander etc. Many great melodic parts. It just keeps going and going and I never get tired of it. Those gang shouts there are quite pointless, but other than that, nothing to complain.

NP:
Solitude Aeturnus - Into the Depths Of Sorrow
I absolutely love the 'gritty' feel of SA's music. Sure, they're 'epic doom' in league with Candlemass, but they always portrayed a 'dirtier' feel in their music. Such a great band.

Robert Lowe's voice sounds like a detached spirit, which gives them a lot of character.

Indeed.

NP:
Last Chapter - The Living Waters
1997 release featuring the aforementioned Lowe on vocals. It's right in line with SA and the elegant yet gritty doom they mastered.

Now spinning Samael - Worship Him

Lacks the oomph of Blood Ritual but so far not bad. This sounds more black metalish I think mostly due to the thin production.

Dark Moor - Maid of Orleans

Their magnum opus, imo. Absolutely immaculate.

Blackfinger - "Blackfinger"
The second coming of '90s+ Trouble, with the imitable Eric Wagner on vocals. Eric was one of those few vocalists who I'd pay to hear sing the phone book.
